"With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (2010), the urgency for improving quality in patient care while reducing costs has accelerated the need for program management competency in the healthcare arena," says Dr. Alison Watkins, Associate Dean for Graduate & Certificate Programs and Associate Professor Information Systems & Decision Sciences. "Most healthcare institutions have dozens, even hundreds of mission-critical projects that need to be professionally managed. PMP provides the framework and structure for success."

To better serve the needs of the community, The University of South Florida St. Petersburg has been reviewed and approved by the Project Management Institute (PMI) as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) of project management training, and has agreed to abide by PMI established quality assurance criteria.

Sessions will run Saturdays - June 7, June 14, June 21 and June 28 - on the University of South Florida St. Petersburg Campus. Cost is $795 per attendee.
